House arrest, day 3

Hi pups,

I'm on house arrest and it STINKS. See, even though MOM has given me heartworm preventative every month since I adopterated her, I managed to test positive for adult worms. So Thursday I had to go to the V-E-T and get a SHOT and now I have to be calm for a month when they will give me another shot and then I will have to be calm again for another month.

Also, since that scary seize-her incident a few weeks back I have been taking anti-seize-her medicines. They make me really thirsty so I have to go outside to pee about every 5 minutes. So now instead of getting some PRIVACY while I do that, MOM puts me on a leash and takes me out into MY yard and hovers over me.

I also had another seize-her at the V-E-T so everything is still very stressful and mysterious for my mom but she is hanging in there. Don't worry, I'll take good care of her.

Kodiak feels your pain. When he first came to Chez Herd he tested negative both at the rescue and at his first vet visit with us. A few months later, trying to figure out why he was not adding weight, we discovered he was positive. Came to find out that a dog will test false negative for the first 4-6 months of infection. But he came through the treatments very well. Rooting for the best outcomes!

Aww, dude. That's rough.

Big Pupi did the heartworm treatment but he got his shots 24 hours apart and had to be a calm boy for 6 weeks. His body swelled up like a ball after the 2nd shot and mom had to drug him to knock him out because he was in so much pain. It was awful but when the wormies are gone for good it's worth it. We wish you all the best during your treatment.

Mom can't remember if she sent you this, but here goes~

This is supposed to be the best K9 epilepsy group on the web:

main site:

It may be worth joining for support and for all of the info from folks who have been right were you are now.

Also, our friend Henry has a nice blog:
They haven't posted in a while, but there's lots of good info on there if you start from the beginning.

Feel better my beastly friend.

Hey Beckett:

If Kodiak could do it, You Can Too!

I'm feeling bad you are having these problems, but I bet you will get fixed up and then you'll be good to go until you are an old geezer!

Your pal Stella
